Hidden Territories of the Bacchae
Double Edge Theatre (948 Conway Road, Ashfield, MA 01330)
Double Edge Theatre, set in the fields and along the river of an old farm in Ashfield, performs the Hidden Territories of the Bacchae, directed by Founding Artistic Director Stacy Klein and created with the Double Edge Ensemble — a response to Euripides’ Bacchae in which women’s rites are no longer in hidden territories, and women are freely able to express their deeply held desires.
Since 2002, each year Double Edge presents an annual site-specific Summer Spectacle at their Farm Center — the events are site-specific and move throughout the grounds of the Farm Center, incorporating myth and folktale and circus arts. Performances will run Wednesday to Sunday through July 31 at 8 p.m. and August 3 to 6 at 7:30 p.m.
